To quote rock legend, Jim Morrison: “Some of the worst mistakes in my life were haircuts.” There is nothing worse than leaving the hair salon wondering if you would look good with a hat. Thankfully, we’ve got you covered.
Whether you’re are taking it easy in Bondi or keeping it slick in Surry Hills, Sydney is a fashion forward, cosmopolitan city. Your hair style should reflect this. We’ve selected the best ones, so click through our directory. After you make an appointment, read our guide to finding the best hairstyle for your face shape:
You want a hairstyle that does not elongate your face. Think classic shapes and scissor cuts – nothing too short because you want to add width. There should not be a distinction between the top and sides of your hair. When you style your hair, make sure that everything is neat because you do not want to add too much volume.
Well-proportioned, you can handle most haircuts. Lucky you. From a short buzz cut to a voluminous pompadour, you can experiment with different looks. Stay clear of a fringe because this can cover up your forehead and make your face appear rounder. Go with your hair’s natural growth pattern to lift it off your face, and emphasise its ‘ovalness’.
When you think square, you think jawline. This face shape is versatile and works with many styles. We suggest an undercut to make most of your distinctive features. When styling your hair, focus on fullness. A quiff works well whether it’s classic or modern; a deeper side part will enhance your features.
You want to balance out the top and bottom part of your face, so your chin doesn’t appear too narrow. A texture fringe or quiff will help to balance this out. Avoid tight cuts because it can highlight the imbalance.
You want to create angles and elongate the face. Try a pompadour or something that is longer up top with shorter sides. A side part can also help to create more angles and give you a mature look.
